Ike Iacono in his Jimmy-6 dragster sitting at the almost unrecognizable Pomona Fairgrounds drag strip, from July 1958. Notice the unusual multi-piece steering linkage hooked to the Franklin steering box. Also note how clean and tidy the rail is. Iacono was interested in safety way before racing organizations started requiring things like scatter shields and chrome-moly roll bars, all of which can be seen here.
